POSTCARD FROM QVARTZ: PEDRO IN FLORIDA

April 6, 2017


Hi everyone,
10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…1… Launch! The countdown to any launch can be nerve-wrecking. Fortunately, good preparation builds confidence. My team and I have just experienced this in Orlando, Florida, where we have been part of launching something very special together with our client who is in the marine electronics industry. During our 10-week project, we have worked closely with the client team who were getting ready to kick off an ambitious project. The launch experience was remarkable, but so was the journey there. I got to go to the Miami Boat Show… by boat! And because I am a fan of launches and space (especially after my stint at the European Space Agency), we decided to visit NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre in Cape Canaveral, Florida, where the world saw another important launch. Destination: Moon.
